Night music

The rain whispers

against the windows

brushes on a high hat

fingertips on my skin

.

your arm boneless

heavy across my chest

anchoring me to the mattress, you

.

I listen sleeplessly

to the music of your soft breaths

humming of murmured words

until your chest rising and falling

rocks me back to sleep.

    Rain. I’d love to get a little bit of that right now. In the city where we used to live, they’re having terrible flooding. 😦
